New Arrivals In Fall 
and Winter Suits 


Notwithstanding the gigantic strik e amongst New Yo rk 
tailors, the diplomacy we u se in b uying ear ly has stood us 
in good stea d, an d we fi nd ourselves being first, as usual, 
in displaying the products of the World's g reatest designers 
of ladies handsome costumes. 

The first new effects in finely tailored suits will appeal to 

■ _ :"j .- — . . . ■ : -^ i ' — i 1 *■, ' ; ' — — — ' — 

those who care for the distinctiveness of early fall attire. 

The ma nnish cloths ar e to be m ore popular than ever, a s 
is also the military cut and military brai d trimm ings; the 
latter being very strongly evidenced. 

1 H , I ' _— 

The most favoured are the Demi-Tailored Suits showing 
the short j acket and narrow skirt. 

Materials that are receiving the most favour^ are the 

"^T Rough Weaves. Many fancy woven cheviots and adapt at- 

.ions from Scotch effects are favoured in New York and 

European Cities. Matt Weaves are among the novelties.

are losing none of their fa vour. 

The colour question varies very little from last fall. 
There's a very delightful new shade kn own as Aer oplane

more attention than heretofore; Skinner satin being abund-

SfiTOng aRoin ii s for pood none holds u 
more honorable place or is more ac- 
tive than the powerful church, whose 
repre-si ntn t ives are with UB. Method- 
ism Is drawing near Its neconcl cen-, anil It is not too much to suv 
that ii has been one of Ihe'mOSt ef- 
ficient factors In making the British 
Empire what it is. In "his work on 
the frjij^ed Kingdom Br.' Oddwln 
Smlpf pays thai Kiigb-iiu) was a bar- 

barona land before the Wesleyan 

movement began, atal -when one set* 
;■ trlimps of social conditions as they 
existed during- the early part Of the 
KiKhteenth Century, the expression 
dOfia. not seem too strong. It was 
no part of tho Intention of John 
Wesley to found a separate organiza- 
tion. He was himself a clergyman of 
the Church of England and he would 
have gladly "exerted all his Influence 
under the aegis of that body. But 
this proved Impossible, and the re- 
sult was the establishment of the 
World-wide organization whose hon- 
ored representatives are with, us too . ■ 

The Methodist Church of Canada is 
a very" large, very active and very In- 
fluential body. It is an aggressive 
church and appeals to persons In all 
walks of life. It finds a sphere of use^ 
1 illness, in the cities among the cultur- 
ed and wealthy, and on the fringe of 

' tlement, where the struggle for life 
Is hard. vVe shall take a further oc- 
oti to say something of this gi

Mention is made elsewhere In. this 

ig's COlonist of a very interest- 

Jng ^ceremony in which Mr. George 

ierl\ Manager -of the 

iBank of «'■• here, figured 

prominently. Mr. ciilesple is { person-. 

ly so highly esteemed that many 

OThera besides those who have served 

under him in the bank .would have 

11 'glad to have joined in a testi- 

mo-iial Of appro, iation. His long real-' 

den. ej In Victoria and his very promi- 

t position have made him known to 

a-U classes in the community, and by 

ry ope who has come in contact 

with him either, in a business way or 

■tally he is regarded as a fine t 
of a husinPssTnan and cultured gentle- 
1. Although he has reached the age 
at which it is the custom of the hank 
to auperannuate its managers, he Is 
yet a man In the very prime of ac- 
tivity. and not the least ■satisfactory 

flection. of hia friends Is that, hum- 
anly speaking,"" he has many more 
rs of useful li.fe before him. The 

rets of bankB are well kept, and so 
the- ptiblie will riever know how often" 
\\r. Ciilesple has been able to extend 

helping hand to those who needed 

it, hut there are many 

who freely bear testimony in (that be- 

'f. As manager of the Bank of Brit- 
ish, Columbia, before' 1 that institution 
was absorbed by the Bank of Com- 
merce, he was even more closely iden- 
tified with the business ;nf Victoria 
than he has been In later years, for 
in those days the, . banks were less 
numernus than they are now, and a 
great deal more of the business of the 
provin rtlonately centered here 

•11 now. For years Mr. CjMesple has 
bad his fingers on the -puftre-of British 
aess and he lias ttonej his 
full share in promoting its welfare. 
In wishing him all manner of Happi- 
ness in his honorable retirement, the 
i-'donlst voices the sentiments of the 
whole community, 

In progress in the shape' of a ditch de- 
signed to bring the water of the 
ara acro*s the Goldstream .to Jack 
lake. This new reservoir will h. 
capacity of 18,000,000,000 gallons. The 
tunnel may do it no harm, for it will 
be a thousand feet below it, but that 
is a point upon which no one can 
speak with certainty.'- THST the com- 
pany will have the right-to be secured 
by the city is not only just legally, but 
equitably; but the city cunnotpossibly 
be indemnified for any damages It 
may have to pay in that behalf. This 
may be a very serious matter. Just 
how serious it may be can only be 
tol<| after the tunnel bSJ been con- 
structed. Of course the tunnel may 
not be an actual danger to the com- 

rits; but if the 1 
to go to Sooke .for water and tiae— a 
tunnel, it will have to take U 
having to pay serious . . -s tor in- 

juries done to the company's works, it 
Is easy to brush this as id e but we tell 
the ratepayers that' they will have to 
uive security against such 'damage an I 
before they decide to -go on with the 
tunnel, they would do- well to ascertain- 
just what that security will, have to 
.•at of the be. 

Another paint brought the 

inspection of the cmp., nt is 

that if the ,« tt\ owned it. th-re would 
be ^'considerable area which could be 
sold. This includes the land around 
Thetis Lake and at the shore, of Saan- 
ich Arm. It Is said that thcreJ_a«>4 

about, 4,000 acres all told, that could 
be .sold ^without any disadvantage to 
the property as a water -supply. I: 
era can put the value of this land at 
what they think PtOper, but at $100 
an acre—a moderate price, it would 
yield $400',000 which would bring the 
cost of the property to the city jtlst 
so much less" than the price that would 
have to be paid to Jhe company! 

Another fact demonstrated by a vis- 
It to the plant is that the wate'r. sup- 
plied from Goldstream drainage area 
must be as pure as water can ho when 
collected from rainfall, aa all wm 
this vicinity Is. There are some . 
of the world where water is, supplied 
In great quantity from springs, but all 
the water In this vicinity comes dl- 
.rectly from the rainfall.. The eleva- 
tion of the Goldstream drainage 
ia_-SUoh that the chan. ontaml- 

tion are reduced to a minimum, and 
the safety is enhanced In this res, 
by the fact that the company owns 
all the land from, vvhleh the \ 
flow.s Into its reservoirs, and hence la 
in a position to keep it in its na< 
condition. »

to the u-ov-oriiment, simidy because 
some Ingenious person h as mana ged 
to think out that there is a possibility

conspicuous when the timber polic y of

Wt make these observations for the

r, in Kentucky. There is - littla ' <? 

t as to the success the system 1ms ■ 
met with in Kentucky. According to 
al: .reports the game has never been 
"fift •/ret: from evil and sor popular with 
leiai public^ as: under the ■ 
Bt, 'I'm- chief t"-a'uty. of the pari-* 
mutue) is that it is automatic. Ypu

$10 basis. Yod li'uy a ticket on the 
horse you fancy." If the horse wins 
you divide the tO,tal receipts for tick- 
ets on that race with the others who 
bet on tile winner. 

A study of the 1 Kentucky racing, 

charts for tills year will show that tin- 
public gets a much better break than 
do those- that play under the present 
bookmaking system: ICxoept for 5 per 
cent., di-din tid from the pool by the 
racing association to . pay exp* 
the -entire money bet ton a Single race 
is divided among the players. A 
glance at th<; book makers' automo- 
biles will give anyone a good idea of 
how much nf the entire D -t Sfl 

a. single race goes back to the players. 
As a matter of fact, it is a very small 
(taction. The parl-mutuel, then, does

Harry U- -Risdon, Whom Vic- 
toria Miler Defeated in Van- 
couver, Wants a Return 
Match and Says So 

SKATTUK, Aug. IS.— Harry L. Kls- 
iicm, captain of the' Broadway High 
School trui'k team, and tin- varj good 

mite und a half miler who has been B 
(•(insistent performer aroUJid tijiVB tot 

the last three yens win not: take a 
dare from John P. Swcon ey, of Vle- 
lorta or any other man. 

in the recent r. x. A. games in 
Vancouver, when- the Seattle Athletic 
club team won the meet by Wide 

margin, Risdon won the half tnih 
handily, and in the SptnToTS "f 'he Be* 
attle contingent, he would have won 
the mile race just as aasllji had he "" l 

become mixed up In a bUiaping> !i 
with John P. Sweeney. 
Risdon claims Sweeney bumped him. 

S«v.:iih' says Itlsdon Spiked him. Thej 

botn want n understood thai what the 
other fellow did was entirely unlnten 
tional 'rh.- judges deride, i thai It ws 
a double foul and allowed the race to 
stand as a. vi'c-t-ur-y for 

Risdon was not only thrown off his 
-ii Me, but was thrown off hli feel 
While he was=— getting up Sweei

RlSdOB CUl that lead d>.v, i, "bout !

..i the race and finished aboui five 

vanls behind the Vletutia mail. Sti--? 
don's strong hnl>h convinced Tom Mc- 
Donald and the other Seattle men that 
Risdon would have won the r. 
had he not been thrown ofT his,- feet. 
I'lu sin. of the bumping match-was 
told iti The Times after the 
Sweeney took exception to H. am! last 
Sunday his aide at the case was print- 
ed He said he did not bump it: 
in that on the contrary, he was Spik- 
ed by Risdon .so badly that he 
on crutches !!•• also came through 
with the statement that if Risdon • 
not satisfied with th( result of the 
race in Vancouver, Sweeney would be 
glad to meet him in Seattle or 
other place a special race could be ar- 

This morning comes a letter from 
Ion in ri ply He says: "I .wish to 

epi Air Sweeney's challenge Which 

was published In last Sunday's Times. 

I will meet him in an open meet or in 

a special race. and will run hint 400.' 

is, S00 yards or the mile. I will run 

him any one of these distances ot I 

Will meet him In all three races in one 

day. If he wishes to race with me all 

I want is one week's notice; that we 

have proper officials and that the race 

be held before September 20. as I am 

contemplating leaving. Seattle for the 

■ thai ilme. 

"I wish to dispute Mr. Sweeney's 

statement that 1 was to blame for the 

falls' in the' race at Vancouver. Mr. 

I Sweeney pushed me off the truck twice. 

and as I came back the second time I 

tried to push him out of the way with 

• my arm and in so doing I caught my 

kes in the heel of his Bhoe. This 

I made me fall and before I coUlO regain 

feet Mr. Sweeney had a lead of 

"it forty j urn's, thirty -five of which 
< I made up In the last 100 yards." 

With this clear-cut proposition of 

Rfsdon/s- before him. Mi teney 

' should not be bothered about naming 

his conditions" if hie really cares to 

meet Risdon again. He is given the 

of three distances and can n 
his own time provided he gives Risdon 
a work's notice. 
. It is now up to Mr. Sweepey!. 

Rounds second, third, fourth, tenth 
and'tttteenth went in iaror-of- John- 
son. Rounds fifth, sixth, seventh, 
eighth and twelfth favored McVey, 
who obviously was rellMVed when time, 
went In the ninth and tenth rounds 
und seemed tired at the finish. 

tTnTler-thofe circumstances; the»draw 
is a fair Index of the match, and it 
must be quite satisfactory to John- 
son. It was bis first appearance in a 
foreign country and his first encoun- 
ter with such a formidable customer 
as Sun .McVey. It is not s urpr i si ng, 
therefore, that he did not let himself

which are Impossible with vehicles on 
land or ships on the sea. To the makers

called upon the speaker of the evening. 

who upon rising was met with cheers. 

Assuring the gathering that be was

Parading at full strength through the 

Streets of -the city, headed t'y tin- scout

day afternoon eruocesafUlly underwent 

their initial inspection hy the Chief 

scout. Considering thai the movement 

was only introduced in this city last 
October, Sir Robert Baden-1'ov 

there was plenty of room for improve-

feeling of the men of Canada, and to 
the same end the .boy scouts had been 
formed to encourage the progress and 
brotherly feeling "f the empire. He 
had made his way across the continent 
i" this part tlrst, because he thought 

that, -in this wen torn part the m 

u-nt was least needed. Here .we hail 
Plenty in the way of. nature outside the 
_schp.ol walls for:' thin Interest 

but in Kngland the hoys bad been' ne 
glected "owing to the thickly populated 
sections of the country. Here .nmbi- 
tious could not fail to intake manly men. 
but there things were different and the 
boy scout was greatly needed. 
Alms of Movement. 

The aims of the movement, . the 
speaker continued.' were to try and make 
good citizens and men of the future. 
In the schools, reading, writing and 
arithmetic were taught, hut no s. 
could teach .character. Iviany could not 
read nor write but character bad car- 
" ried them through Iffe. This is left 
to the boys' parents, and surroundings. 
The man with • no character never 
climbs: That, he claimed was . the one 
great points of the movement. He said 
that ■ the romance of scouting appealed 
to all boys. Here, the work was easier 
as open holds were to he found to teach 
: the open life of strenuous endeavor and 
chivalry, but the work at home had f" 
be taught greatly on Imaginat ion -of the 
wikls. The boys there have to bp met 
half way In England and In their back- 
yards and parks by practical man they 

■ giveh t he neces sary imagination. 
Boys had to' qualify" by their personal 
good quality. They are taught cooking, 
to make -trrreir own bed, be able to' map 
out the country; know the Sky and 
study the nature about., There Is some- 
thing 'in every boy, that, if -given ' a 
chance, will come out. ■ • 

l-'or efficiency In any of these lines, 
badges are given and when a boy at- 
tains the ■ standing of six of these 
badges be Is awarded an ;arm band, 
which signifies that he is an all-round 
scout. Later on with more attainments 
in this line one can reach the standing 
"I king scout, which fa greatly thought 
of by the average seout. In this man- 
ner boys are taugtit to be useful — trr 
their country. 

One point Sir Robert wished to be 
underst ood nnd that was. that the boy 
ut, movement does not' encourage 
soldiery. The main feature is to .train 
the" hoy discipline. - As ' for instance 
their firemen companies, each boy has 
his individual work to perform and he 
is taught to obey at the word of com- 
mand. Obedience becomes a habit and 

- habit forms into naturalness^ 'I 
smoking for instance. If a boy wan' 

oke he will, but among the hundreds 
.if thousands of hoy scouts, sir Robert 
stated, jrou will find 90 per cent, do not 

Oke. The scout is taught in 
a snob. Whether rich or poor it is for. 
all boys. We are all. serving the same 
king and want and have no hack fight- 
ing among ourselves in this movement. 
All are given an equal chance, 

Another point -was .that each boy 
should have his religion and It Would

son's, a shori summer afternoon's jaunt from 
the truck of the city, that beneath the surface 
of the still lagoon below, bivalvular. < ItticeQUS; 
animals, properly referred to as member- 
the genus Ostrea, and precisely described as 
Ostrea Virginiaria, live and move and i 
1 heir being? 

Forsooth it sounds blood-curdling, rcpel- 

lant, and. lest we innocently inspire fear in the 
hearts of gentle citizens, weriiaste to explait. 
thai what we refer to as a member of the gcnu.s 
< Ktrca is merely the common marine bivalve 

Having thus relieved suspicion, we I 
explain that it would not be wise. nor advisable 
to he ton precise in ordering these delicacies of 
the average cafe waiter. Hence. -to clear' our 
skirts | we should say our trousers) of any 
blame whatsoever we state clearly the follow- 
ing rules: 

Run the finger of the right hand down, the 
menu until k, rests upon the phrase, "huitre 
T. >uvres." Then, never by any chance say : 

"You may bring me a bare half do?en"ma- 
rine bivalvular testaceous mollusks of the 
gentts Ostrea." 

If you do, the waiter will, very probably 
either turn in a fire alarm, or notify 'the asylum 
authorities. ,'• is quite sufficient to say: 

"Six on the ball shell in a rush." 

Oysters, so named', v* are med, from. 

their hard shells, were looked upon as 
bits in Russia and France long before the 
terlings of - Es< pi jmaJ.L ....basked i„ -■ | ,\} nv . 
shale of the long lagoon. But '1" Russians 
called them !>_v the name "ystritz," and the 
French referred to them as "huitre," -So that it 
is only natural that they were no1 recognized 
by English-speaking people Eor some time. 

Many years ago, perhaps about the same 
time that Sir Walter Raleigh was making him- 
self sick trying to enjoy Virginia, M nii/lit cut 
in a red clay pipe, the Eur opean /oj tej was

Not quite so marfy years .-,,_.,, the idea of

struck the \tlantic oysters favorably, i'ci..- 

haps Horace Sreeley's a dvice, "Go west, 

young man, go west," had hern taken up by 
the older oysters and applied to the ambitious

With the beds. once planted, the workers

Time effects the rest. All the attention re- 
quired is a little raking and prodding to pre

three years is required for the oyster to mature; 
but now that the beds have been planted for 
several years there is always a good crop ready

3TAe Vocabulary of Failure 


The failures in Life are far more numerous 
than the successes. A few of them are due tp 
accident, but most of them are due tg iiic&pa- 
city, either moral. <>r mental,, or physical. In 
every trade or profession, or" other occupation, 
tlie successful man, or at least the one who 
has not actually .failed, looks down with a ccr- 
t.ain contempt' on those who have gohe'tQ the 
wall or .who are inferior to* himself. 

Language fits itself, to the necessities of lui . 
man life, It gives words to whatever needs to 
be expressed by the mind ; for language IS t lie 
handmaid of the mind. It is the mode 1>\ which 
the mind makes itself felt and understood hv 
other minds. So, for ever} - level 
a special vocabulary; and it is not surprising, 
then, that there has been evolved wii.u we ma) 
call the vocabulary of failure 

This means that the successful man or WO 
man has one or more names by which to de-ie, 
nate the ansttceessful man of woman m his ot 

iier ow n sphci e I if life. It is a vocabulaiy made 

up entirely Pf reproach, and it marks the 'lis- 
tinction between good, etficient work and 
bungling - - ^ 

Thus, beginning with the professions, il a 
physician becomes notorious for his failure to 

cure patients, he is termed a quack. A la wyer 

of repute, one who undertakes only reputable 
practice and succeds in it, is called g enefic a lly 
a law\cr. or an attorney, ot a couns e llor^

Johann Gottfried Herder 

' When Herder was twenty-three years old, 
he expressed a theory wiiicli lias since caused 
many minds to think, inspired,; scientific rc- T 
search, and proved the foundation of much 

philosophy. It was an idea, | >i< d>ai il \ imt ori- - 
ginal'with him . indeed I [erder would Jiave been , 
the first to deny sueh a claim, but U was an 
idea that for a long tinie had lain dormant, had 
not been enlarged upon, or used as a premise 
from which to work t" great cone 1 us iofts-, Km- 
bodied in his own words, the theory is as ftf] 
1 o w s : 

"There [5 the -ame law oi-chsuge in all man 

kind, and in every in dh (dual, nation and tribe,

a reader, unless he reads with an idea of draw-

/of evolution would, have been without one of 
its most exalted apostles."' 




. M r, \V. K. Chesterton is a 
riurhorist. lb' never makes US-.laugh, ami set 
<l"in -makes US smile otitwanlly. but he stirs us 
inwardly to a sense of kecties'l amusement: At 

the same time 'we can ne\ er be ,*<fuite sure 

whether he is in iesl or earnest, o which give-, a 

most charming uncertainly to whatever a-sri -

like-- to make inn f6r*people, or fun ol people, 

or fun for himself. Mi-- book is called. What

"What 1- wrong with the w QJ Id." -,t\- M- 
Chesterton, "is thai we do not ask what, is 
right." We live in a world in which raimen t

realistically before we have conceived an ideal. 
In doing so we put the cart before the horse. 

when he came across a man who had sat for 
one of his pictures. < 

"What are you doing now?" asked Mr. 
Stone, "Last time I saw }oii \\as w'lieh'^oii 
were sitting , for Mr. Blank for one of his re- 
iiglOUS pictures." 

"Yes, sir," replied the model sadly. " \n'

Vice cMiie down lor one i >l the Twelve ApoS* 
lie-, ain't it , sir ?" 

1 1 1 It is early days Mr. StOnj was often in 
i!h' company of Charles. Dickens, who was a 
greal friend of the future artist's father. It 
was Dickens, indeed. who first encouraged 
young Stone to become an artist. ( >nc day the 
novelisl found the boy illustrating a subject 
froin ''tie of his books, ami was so delighted 
with its cleverness that he begged it as a gift. 

h is interesting to note that Mr. Stone is 

almost entirely scl 1" -taught : but from his very 
earliest years he was surrounded by a true 
■artistic atmosph e re , foj he mel a! hi- father's 
house such celebrities as Mtdrcadv and Hand-

Mr. Stone believes that painting 1- some- 
what akin to literature- that is to -a\. that 

every picture should tell a little story by itself. 

"Painting." he has said, "is after all. only the

pressed. Herder had the intuition ot a wo 

man. Me saw s (1 plainly the truths he fain- England great, between them they "trample 
would teach that he had not the patience to sift down -the unlucky laborer, who assents iii a 
01 analyze for the benefit oi those wl'm would da/.cd complaisance to whatever is thrust lu- 
be taught; he had 11 • -t the inclination to seek 

ina— file highest possible position in the bailer. 

It had always been a rule that no otic could 
be made a ballerina until she had been a soloist 
for seven years, and I regard it as a very great 
distinction that I was appointed after four 
years.. This was very flattering. 1 had work- 
ed hard, however, for it was only when I be 
came a soloist that I realized how very much 
I had to learn. It would have been very natur- 
al if some 51 the other members of the ballet 
had felt a little hurt at my early promotion, 
but it is very pleasant to know that this was 
not the case, ami that it was recognized that 
my anxiety to dance belter .and ever better was 
due to my intense love for my art.,- 

Since become a ballerina 1 have had the 
honor ol dancing before main great person 
ages, but at no time have 1 been received with 
more kindness than when I danced before 
king Edward and (Jticen Alexandra. I have, 
of course, danced many times before the' Ifin 
peror 61 Russia, at whose hands 1 have re- 
ceived much kindness The Kmperor take- a 
great interest in the ballet, and after a perform- 
ance he will sometimes come on the stage and 
personalis congratulate whose work has 
pleased him, i need 'scarcely' emphasize how 
much this gracious encouragement means u> a 
J 1 'ling dancer. 

King ErttStav of Sweden did me the honor of 
conferring on me the Order of Arts and 



1 practical proof of what he claimed, nor 
concern himself with detail. Mis own belief 
in his theories was so strong, that he needed no 
.self-convincing, not realizing, perhaps, that 
Others who thirsted to understand, could not. 
lacking his intuitive discernment, follow him 
with' am degree of lucidity. Hence Herder 
dors not rank among the masterminds, who

jacitv for taking pains." . He merely suggested

Herder's teachings in' the following wor

of portrv. "Catties ^mxh^i^ies. fables and

ance. The action of this play 1- supposed to 
take place in .Munich, nad the story is founded 
on one of the old Xetherland Sagas, It 
abounds in. folk-songs anil dances, and magni- 
ficent scenes. The following description o4-thc 
plot is taken from a, I. ondon contemporary : 

Kunrad, a recluse, is disturbed in his studies 
by children who come to him to beg fo,- wood 
for the fires that are to be kindled in act 
ance with an annual custom, on St. John's Day. 
Suddenly the thought occurs to him that he has 
devoted himself too long to his books., and so 
he bids the children mak,c a bonfire of them. 
Afl the flames leap up they: reveal to him the 
beauty of Dicnuit. the burgomaster's daughter, 
and he makes bold t" kiss her. Tn revenge she 
promise- to see him if he will' ascend to her 
room that night in a .basket which she will 
hang out from her window. It is a trick, and 
the audacious Kunrad finds himself dangling 
in ..mid-air. exposed to. the jeers of the onlook- 
ers. Beside himself with rage, he summons 
magic to his aid. and by its means extinguishes 
all the lights in the town, declaring at the same 
time that darkness will reign until Diemut ad- 
mit- him, to her., presence. . .Moyed^by- the* cir -- 
treaties of the crowd, she at last reletits. and as 
a faint glimmer of light is seen in her room the 
love-musi<J in the orchestra rises to a passion- 
ate climax, While the fires and lights in the 
town blaze up. amid the joyous cries of the 

people.- , ' ' 

Sciehces when I danced at Stockholm, and. 
later, ai Copenhagen, I appeared before the 
King and Queen of Denmark. 

W hen we were in Berlin, the iimpcror Wil- 
liam sent a message regretting that he could 
not come and see us as he" was with the army 
at manoeuvres, and asking us to postpone our M" 1 Kkcj you can have it." 

Madame Melba saw the point. I got a 
medical certificate a/id persuaded her to don 
"full dress." just as if she were going to sing. 

WTicTfTlTedime came, I stepped on the plat- 
form explained matters and road out the cer- 
tificate. Then Madame Melba appeared, 
bowed right and left, but without speaking a 
word, and retired amid an ovation, .which could 
not have been surpassed had she sung. 

The circumstances of my connection with 
l'adcrcwski make i'piite a little story. 

One day I received from Stavenhagen a 
Viennese newspaper containing a short ac- 
count of a xouccrt given by a new pianist 
named Igifacejan I 'aderew-ki. The critic said 
that there were onlv three pianists in the world 
who had the power of really "holding" an au- 
dience — Kugcn d'Albert. Stavenhagen, and 
this new man I'aderewski. 

The notice impressed me. and I thought it 
would be of interest if I could introduce the ris- 
ing star to London. Hut could 1 find Pad- 
erewsfcir No, not a bit of it. 1 even went ove,r 
to Germa ny to search for him; but 'without: 
avail, and so I let the idea rest. 

One day. my friend Mr. Arthur Chapped, 
with whose firm I had had business dealings. 
asked me to call on him. I went round, and 
he showed me a letter from Paris to the effect 
thai a young pianist named I'aderewski was' 
coming to London, that he was undoubtedly a 
great artiste, and would Mr. Chappell act as 
his agent and arrange his concert-. ' 

"Well, youngster." Satd Mr. Chappell — he 
always calfcd me "youngster"— "this isn't in 
my line. W'e have always got on very well to- 
gether, this might be a chance for you, and, if 

departure for a few days. This, to my great 
regret, was found to be impossible owing to 
ioushj made arrangements, but I hope to

Last December, before going to America, 
some of the citizens of St. Petersburg greatly 
honored me by presenting me with a magnifi- 
cent diamond. Which is. now. one of my most 
treasured possessions. In America Che people 
' • med to like my dancing, for they were vcrv 

And thus, after my fruitless efforts to find 
him, this world-renowned artiste was in this 
unexpected manner placed under my direction. 

Chance plays a. considerable part in a musi- 
cal agent's life. For example, it was purely by 
chance that .1 Was the mean- of introducing 
I'avlova and Mordkin. the great Russian dan- 
cers, to London audiences. 

A confrere wrote to me saying that Pavlova 
and -Mordk in were coming to London to fulfil 
a private engagement, and he would be glad if 

flattering indeed, and everything I said seemed I could show them some little attention. 1 

to be quoted in the newspapers 

There i$ a movement On foot at present in 
London for the. establishment of a school for 

opera, where in ""a^ students 
might from time to time give exhibitions of 
their talent before a severely critical audience. 
That such a school would be a boon to the pub- 
lic and. to all, pudding geniuses goes, without 
question. Such an examination as the students 

would be compelledjo go th rough would con- to give Londoners a chance of seeing these in 
vincc themselves and their judges as to the ex comparable. dancers. — 1 

showed them all the attention I could,. realizing 
nee that I had to do with geniuses. 
Happening to meet my friend Mr. 'Alfred 
I'utt, of the Palace Theatre, when arranging for 
Maud .Mian's American tour. 1 told him about 
Pavlova and Mordkin, and he said he would 
like, to secure them for the Palace'. I saiif 1 
feared it was, impossible, but I would dq my 
best, and in the end f was able to smooth awav 
the many difficulties that stood in the wa\,and 

tent of their ability, if they possessed any. and 
a great deal of future suffering on the part of 
IfiJcJTcncc and artist might be saved.

Our mean annual rainfall is about thirty 
inches: the quantity about 215.000,000,000,000 
cubic feet per year, equivalent to ten Mississip- 
pi rivers. 

The product of the fisheries of the United 
States - has an annual valueof $57,000,000. Fish 
from forest-waters furnish $21,000,000 worth of 
food yearly, supply dependent on the preser- 
vation of the forests. 

The soil matter annually carried into lower 
rivers and harbors or into the sea by freshets, 
is computed at 780,000,000 tons. The annual 
loss to farms alone is fully $500,000,000, and 
large losses follow the fouling of the waters 
and the diminished navigability of the streams. 

It is estimated that the quantity of fresh 
water stored in lakes. and ponds, (including the 
American portion of the Great Lakes) is about cubic feet, equivalent

In speaking of the American_I ndians. .

national characteristics. The origin of the 
Red Race of thc Western Hemisphere is,' and 
probably must ever remain, a mystcrw For a 
long time there was a disposition Oil the pari 
on.-, gentle and right-living. His weakness was of investigators to assume an Asiatic origin for 
his inordinate fondness .of money? and the the aboriginal Americans. This was largely 
reason for his losing favor With the Queen and due to the fact that all men we're assumed to 
hi- supremacy in England was due to charges have originated in Asia, a theory that. cannot be 
of misappropriation of public funds. As he successfully maintained in the face' of the mass

look back to ihe history of our. own ancestors 
to find good cause for sympathy \\ ith them. 

Before conclu ding this reference to the Red 
Race, it may be well to remind readers <rf what 
was said about these people in a previous-'arti- 
cle on this page, namely, that there is much evi- 
dence tcj the effect that- some centuries previous

The most notable event in the reign of Anne 
was the union of Scotland with England. This 
was only accomplished after much acrimoni- 
ous discussion, and it has. to this day been 
maintained by those who Opposed the union 
that the leading men of the , country . were 
bought to give their adherence to the proposal. 
Even the price, £20.540 17s yd, is named. 
There is little doubt that this charge did great 
injustice to the men who favored the .Union, 

remote past, settled upon the western coast of 
the Continent, is by no means improbable. Cer-' 
tain physical, resemblances, some linguistic pe- 
culiarities and a few ancient traditions point to 
such a conclusion: but whether these colonics, 
if they came at all, were numerous or other- 
wise, they became assimilated with the native 
race, and have scarcely had an appreciable ef- 
fect upon the determination of the character of 
the people. The more recent investigators have 
reached thc conclusion that the inhabitants of 
the Western Hemisphere from the Eskimos on.

There are said, to be fully 1.200,000,000 peo- 
ple in the world today, who are non-rChristian. 
This takes no account of the thousands upon 
thousands of people of .Christendom, who are 
irreligious. ^Time Was when every man felt 
called—upon to identify himself with some 
Christian denomination. Now in every com- 
munity there are great numbers i if-pn'tptr WtT* > 
are absolutely without any denominational 
connection. When t he census-taker .comes 
round they will say they are what their fathers 
or mothers were, but practically they are irre- 
ligious in a denominational sense, and they are 
not even Christians; in the vaguest sense of 
that term. A returned traveler in China speak- 
ing of a certain mandarin, whose acquaintance 
he had made and with whom he spent some lit — 
tie time. said. "He had no religion ; he was just 
like any man of the world anywhere." This 
did not mean that the mandarin was an objec- 
tionable person, but quite otherwise. The fact 
that he was irreligious was a- recommendation 
in the eyes of thc traveler, for he was honor- 
able, straightforward, kind, courageous, and in 
every w ay a, most likable man. whose i nfluence^ 
was always exerted for good. There are thou- 
sands of men of whom the same things can be 
said as were spoken of this mandarin. Some 
of them are conspicuous in business, science 
'and society ; .most of them are not. 

Let us inquire for. a little wherein, the irre- 
ligion of such people consists. They have their 
standards of right and wrong which are not in 
any. way different from the Ttlncs,.of Christi- 
anity ; but they are unwilling to accept any 
creed or recognize any church authority ; .they 
do not trouble themselves in the slightest 
degree about theology. They do not 90 much 
disbelieve any of the cardinal doctrines of 
Christianity as they ignore thenras of no prac- 
tical importance. The great .historical proto- 
type of such men was Confucius. This Chinese 
sage taught practical morality only. H'e did not 
found a religion It C not correct to say of him. 
as some dp, that .he .ignored the existence of 
Cod. for In- speaks in his \vritingsTrcfpicntly 
of a 1'owrr. which he, calls Shang-te. whose 
visible manifestation is the Cnivcrs.e; but' he 

' trnm 'speculating as 

to the nature of Sharm te, ^ hich" he_&aid was 
''unconnected wdlh their duties ami far beyond 
their depth." Tlv lc we speak of are ir- 

reliviou s in'the se nse that Confurins was. They 
do right. not because they believe that thereby 
they will please Cod. but because they think- it 
is right The expectation 'of' a "'future reward 
or the fear s»f future punishment does not in- 
fluence them in the slightest particular. These 
are the men whose failure to go to church is so 
• mntlv a topic of discussion. There are 
thousands bf voung 'men -rowing up in this 
all over tjiis Western land, and this fact is 
one of prime importance. , T » - .

It was just a narrow stretch Of ground on a 
city lot, shadowed by closely-built houses, and 
a high, tight, board fence, but the wild flowers 
flourished there, although the conditions were 
very different from tJvSsS 51 their "natural habi- 

The beginnings of the garden were made 
twelve years or more ago, before the danger 
of the extermination of our native, plants was 
fully realized. The woods, however, were even 
then'receding before the gr-owth of the city Od 
Rochester, making longer and longer trips ne- 
cessary to bjring US to the haunts of our wild- 
wood friends. Soy . because we loved them; be- 
cause if we could not visii them in their native 
retreats we still longed to see them; because it 
was only a question of time before many of 
,_them would be ruthlessly destroyed, when we 
found them at all plenty we took a few of them 
up tenderly with as much, of the soil as pos- 
sible and carried them h ome. 

Tt was. always a matter of surprise that so 
many and such different species of plants 
should tioufis n und er such apparently uniavbr 
-able conditions. The soil was naturally rather 
heavy and poor, but many basketfuls of wood's 
soil and leaf -mold were uncomplainingly 
tugged home and added to* it, and the leay 
with which nature covered the bed in the fall 
were allowed to decay and then were carefully 
dug in around the roots "f the plants. Many 
of our native plants, and especially the early 
spring flowers, readily adapt them-' !\ es to the • 
wild-Sower garden, but none of them will do 
this without more or less care.. 

The natural thim.- on c - to do* in be- 1 

ginning a wild garden is to start in the spring 
when everyone feels an impulse for gard- 
When hot weather comes, the desire for gar- 
dening wanes, and many wild gardens contain 
nothing bill the delicate shade-loving flowers 
of May and June. It would be better if we all 
began with the summer and autumn blooming ' 
wild flowers, which are generally more robu-i 
and sun-loving. These require less care than 
the spring wild flowers, and few of them are in 
danger of extermination. Naturally everyone 
who begins a wild garden wants to start with 
lady-slippers, and all the rare and delicate 
things. These are precisely the things that are 
in da tiger of extermination, and people ought 
to take them until they have had some experi- 
ence in gardening. . 

The second commonest mistake is to bring 
in the plants with insufficient balls of earth. It 
is only fair to others that when we remove 
rare plants from the wild to our gardens we 
should take pains to duplicate natural condi- 
tions as far as possible. Lady-slippers and 
other orchids almost thrive permanently in 
gardens. Most of them require a combination 
of shade and leaf mold and more moisture than 
it is convenient or, possible to give. Moreover. 
it i- likely that there are certain undiscovered 
elements in the. cultivation of hardy orchids. Tt 
is a great deal batter to leave the orchids, in 
the wild and join the Wild Flower Preserva- 
tion Society of America, than to bring lady- 
slippers into the garden where it is impossible 
to duplicate natural conditions. - 
• ' The glory of the garden was in the trillium 
blossoms. Roots of white ones (Trillium grand- 
iflorum) were carried home year after year, 
until. several fine clusters.adorned the bed. One 
clump^though seemingly planted in about the 
worst possible-place, close up against the board 
fence, increased in size until last year it bore 
forty blossoms. When- these 'were in bloom, 
all at -onee, 7 -the plant was a beautiful sight.. 

Tfhefiwoers were of very ' Ta'rge'size'.-'.- 
of the purest white. The fed-flowered Iridiums 
(T. erectum'). flourished also, making a pretty 
contrast white ones, and the dark-red 

fruit made the plants attractive after the 
blossoms had withered. Trilliums are so beau- 
tiful and so deserving of cultivation, that it is 
a pleasure to note that several dealers in na- 
' tive plants catalogue them. They flourish bet- 
ter if transplanted after the bulbs have ripened 
than when taken up in bloom, ami they require 
two years to become really, well-established. 

"The lady-slippers, or cypripendiums, were 
the choicest occupants of the garden. The 
greatest pains Were taken in transplanting them 
from their native homes, a ball of earth bcinf 
lifted with them and care being exercised not . 
to injure the roots. Leaf mold and sand were 
. mixed with the common soil, and for several 
years they flourished finely. They, did best in 
a partial shade, and with G. speetabile it w 
found necj that the ground should be. kept 

moist all the time. After a few years they grad- 
ually failed. C. pubescens continued vigorous, 
longer than ! tabile, but at last it also fail- 

ed to put in an appearance, and as both spc> 
were beco ming scaj in the woods, no 'effort 
was-' made to replace them. G. parviflorunr;. 
with its quaint little blossoms, survived the 
longest, but last season only two or three stalks 

came up, and these prod uced 'no. flowers. I). ■

Hepatica.s, white, pink and blue, grew here, 
there and everywhere, delighting us with their 
delicate coloring and downy new leaves so care 
fully solded. No other wild plant better repaid 
transplanting and cultivation.-' Some amateur 
Burbank' ought to improve the hepatica. 

Early visits to the wood&»befote any flowers 
were in blossom, were often rewarded by find 
ing specimens of the brilliant scarlet cupsof the 
fungus called Peziza coccinea., A part ially de- •• 
caved branch covered with these was carried 
home, laid in a shady place and carefully cov- 
ered with leaves. It wa> by no. means expected 
that these gay fungi would reproduce 'them-

did. and year after year they appeared, making, 
an interesting and attractive feature in our lit-'

stalk, thus prolonging the flowering until the 
latter part of August. The brilliant blossoms 
shone like a flame. It does well in ordinary

is that its spike'gets _ragged, the lower flowers

House Plants 

If the old rubber plant is too big7 or you, 
want to propagate; from it, now is the time to 
begin. Tie a handful of moss around the stem, 
keeping it thoroughly soaked with water, and 
in a short tirne 1 sill be emitted. When 

this occurs, 'take a flower pot, cut it in half and 
bind the two halves around the rooting portion 
of the stem, filling with light soil containing 
plenty of sand, and keep well' watered. The 
roots wilf take firm hold and next spring the , 
stem may be cut off level with, the bottom' of 
' the pot and' the new plant started on its own

Carnations that have been growing out- 
doors may be potted up\- and also take cuttings 
of geraniums' which will serve as stock plants 
to give more cuttings for early planting in the 
. spring. 

All tender greenhouse plantsrthat have been 
put out during the summer should be taken up 
and potted this month if they arc to be carried 
• over the winter.

* "That man lived in squalid surroundings all 
his life in Order to build up a bank account, and 
at his death his property was worth less than 
it won Id have been if he had used his surplus in 
repairs, instead of allowing it to pile up in a 
bank, lie was looking for goid-COtnS, you see, 
andwhile picking them up helost values in an- 
other direction, -r— 

"The fact that poultry keeping is not of 
self an aesthetic occupation, if we continue our 
whole thought to the absolute necessities of its 
administration, without giving thought to the 
surroundings', or to the possibilities of making 
values that are hot ponderable or that cannot 
be arrayed and counted and given a specific 
value, should inspire us to a greater effort to 
make the surroundings as pleasant as possible. 

"Not long ago we visited one of the finest 
poultry plants in this country. On this big farm 
eYcrv building is well put up, neatly painted 
and kept as clean as possible with rather more 
than ordinary attention to this part of, the 
\vork. Thef yards are big and covered with a 
thick turf. Actually it is the only large poultry 
farm we can call to mind where the fowls may 
be said to have a green lawn on which to dis- 
play their attractions, and we may add. they do 
look better there than they would in the aver- 
age yard in which not a spear of grass is allow- 
ed- to exist. 

"The owner of this farm and his wife are 
both enthusiastic poultry breeders. They 
work hard to make money, although they might 
live a life, of ease. . 

"But money is not the only object this good 
couple has in view. They believe in living in 
the best sense of the word. They do' not keep 
their eyes' constantly on the ground hoping to 
now and then pick up a stray coin of shining 
gold. They look. at the world from a higher 
plane. ..Their horizon is not bounded by the 
circle of their farm and their poultry yard. If 
it were given them to choose, as it was Sol- 

scratch and wallow about the roots of the trees 
and bushes, keeping them cultivated. The. 
rains wash the droppings into the soil, thus 
keeping" stired. and the plants grow with ad- 
ditional vigor and become fruitful in the high- 
est degree. 

"We asked the owner what he did when the 
berries and other small fruits were ripening 
to prevent the hens from eating them. He re- 
plied that he let the hens eat all they wanted 
of them. The hushes were so vigorous and 
fruitful that the hens only ate a small propor- 
tion of the fruits and berries, -and what they 
left made a larger crop than would have been 
produced under ordinary circumstances, so he 
Cguld well afford to divide with the hens. 
"I iere is a case where seeking for attractivc- 
-s alone led to profil from an unexpected 
source. This friend of ours plantedjthe_small 
thev-poul^ ry 1 y a rd e xp ecti fig-~the-4vr n- 
to eat all the fruit, his only object being to hide 
the hare ground and give the hens shade in 
the summer. The result was so unexpected 
that he enlarged the poultry yard. - 1 ;; to in 
elude in them the whole berry patch and small 
fruit orchard, and he has solved the problem 
of completely hiding the barrenness of a poul- 
try yard, in a way that costs little and adds to 
his comfort and profit. - 

Healthy Breeding Stock 
Many breeders of experience have learned 
— and many amateurs are learning — that the 
first requisite to obtain, strongly fertilized 
eggs is healthy, vigorous breeding stock. It is 
hardly ever possible to breed good healthy 
progeny from weak, debilitated parent stock, 
no matter how much care may be taken in the 
raising," so the first consideration is to have a 
breeding pen which are themselves the off- 
spring of healthy, vigorous stock, and then to 
keep them in good health by proper feeding 
and housing. 

- An all too common practice is to house 
fowls in top warm, clos.ed houses in the fall 
and winter months. This is often, responsible 
for the debilitated condition of the b irds and . 
consequent infertility of eggs. in the spring. 

Of course the number of females mated to 
a maile has much influence on the fertility of 
eggs, but if the breeding stock is not strong 
and healthy, no matter how many or few fe- 
males in the pen, the results would be apt to-be- 
disappointing. But if the birds are all healthy, 
-the number of females in a^pen is not so apt to 
make nearly so much difference in the fertility, 
as a perfectly healthy and vigorous male bird 
' can be satisfactorily mated to a very large 
number of females. 

Poultry Notes 
liens generally sit very close together on 
the roosts a,t night. In putting up roosts, allow 
omou of old. they might not ask for wisdom about seven inches for Mediterranean breeds, 

Americans and twelve for Asi- 

alone, but thev certainly would not first ask 
for wealth, because they do -not regard that as 
thc/lH{/hest object 'ope can *eek in life.

Dr. R. I'urd Yeirinder and family, wlin re-

Rryce of the English Alpine Club; "The SCeft-* 
ery of this mount a in is of rare and varied 
beauty. The peak itself is as noble a mountain 

as we have ever seen in n- lines and structure! 

The glacier-, which descend from its snow- 
fields, present all the characteristics of those- 
in the Alps, and the crevasses and serraes are 
equally striking and worthy of close study! We 
have seen nothing more beautiful in Switzer- 
land or Tyro!, in Norway or in the Ryrenei 
than the Puyallop glaciers. The combination 
of its scenerv, with woodland scenerv of the

Sam Patch'i 


Grandfather Xewcomc is famous for his 
stories, or "yarns." as we call them. Nobody 
has to give him "notice" or to wait only long 
enough for him to scratch his shining bald 
head, rumpling in Imagination the. hair that 
used to be there, and settle back in his arm- 
chair w<th a perfectly certain expression on his 
dear old. face, as if a story was the very thing 
that he was longing to tell. ' ' ."* 

When he is-done with his story, one cannot 
feel solemn, even though one has listened to a 
tragedy, or attended funerals. You cannot be 
harrowed by his ghost stories, nor frightened 
by his narrow escapes from "natives" in early 
■ times. • ' 

Somehow ynu feci that they are all "made 
up," and you are ready for another right away ; 
so is Grandfather Xewcome himself. One story 
suggests another, and they are turned out in. 
large nu mbers , as ' newspapers from the-^inl^ 
ing pre-s. ' - 

He invariably begins in this wi^c; "Once; 
.. long- timcjtgO , I'm not certain just what time 
of year." lie never repeat- -ante story 

twice alike, for there are always deviati. 
and amendments.. 

- He enj oys them himself, too. .very much, 

-and will laugh with delight at his jokes, or 
make^hclieve toTec'l very badl\' at the culmin- 
ation of his plot. 

Grandfather Coleman is so different. He 
never tells a "yarn." F'very one of his stories 
is absolutely true. He will tell the same nar- 
rative a dozen different rimes and not swerve 
from his original "stops and pauses." He is 
particular as to dates, very, and we can rely on 
ever} word he says as gospel truth. He always 
begins this way: "One of those far distant 
scenes which I witnessed." 

When he is done, we all sit still, as if we, 
too. had but just witnessed The, events yvirh the 
narrator himself, while dear grandfather is lost, 
i.n visions of the past. which are but too 
vivid to his (aithfulmemory. 

1 11 this way. unconsciously, he-4rn-presses us 
with the truth of wha v he has said, and so con- 
firms us in our entire credence. 

I Mie night, a {north ago. we all begged for 
a story. • - 

"Something back in New York days, when 
ypu w < voung. g andfather." 

"Tel' us about Sam Patch !" cried Joseph, 
who loves the "terrible and the sublime." 
.. , Y' -. tell us about Sam Patch." we all 
.chimed in. and grandfather acquiesced with 
that far-away look of his, when his blue e 
see. not one of us. but the actors in his'story 
who have been dead for tifty years.

British Columbia up to the pre sent time it has 
been grouped for the most part under the gen- 
eral heading of "scenery." But the time is at 
hand when its full value will be taken advan- 
tage of, for "white coal" is water power, and 
this great province is -so situated that it has a 
wonderful wealth of both white and black coal. 

•Time was when the artistic souls cried out 
against the harnessing of vast natural indus-

claimed on the platfor m again st .what he re- 
ferred to as the vandalism of 'the money-grub-

ish .Columbia's use of her natijral j>owcr re- 
sources is., far behind that of other districts 
throughout the world. This, however, is not 
so much because British Columbia lacks pro-: 
gressivencss as because her development is as

-v , 

A cynical writer, in the days when the 
study of etymology was a favorite field for 
f«aks^f imagination,- once propounded the 
ungaliant theory that woman was first called 
. "woa man," because of her . persistent. husband- 
hunting. that afterward the name became 
"wo-man,'' because of the wp resulting from 
her success, Jx.^ias probably the same ingeni- 
ous individual who explained the ordinary pro 
nounciation of the plural "woman" by declar 
ing it to have been 'originally "whim-men," for 
reasons that to him seemed sufficiently Qbyi« 

These interesting speculations, afterward 
embodied in a well -knew n rhyme, were onl\ 

slightly more pr eposter ous than some other 
etymologies 5T Flic word "woman" that have,

poetry has been forced to cluster about with- 
out., any justification is the word "lady."' 
"This,'" say the romantic old etymologists, 
who seem to have had a vast amount of senti- 
ment in their hearts, ''originally meant 'the 
divider of t fa t h-af j and what a beautiful pic- 
ture it gives us of the gentle mitress of the 
household feeding the hungry at the gate!" 

Unfortunately for the truth of this pleasing 

conception, "lady" really mean.- not the trusied 
wife who c<mld freely distribute alms from her 
husband's stock, but simply "the kneader of 
the loaf." or. in plain language, the cook. The 
masculine form, "lord," means "the keeper of 
the loat"; and there in np reason to BUppOSe 
ill. if he failed to justify his title in those bad

• r." the "c of her brother, and 

'iter," the "milk-maid." From tin 
similar d< I Mnller draw? a 

most idyllic picture oi the prehistoric family, 
in which the father was the fond protector ox 
an honored wife,' whom^he set as steward over 
his beloved home, while the sister conso led 
and comforted him. in which, also, he showed 
his primitive humor and playful affection hy 
calling his da ughter hi* "li ttle milk-maid." 

This is very sweet, indeed; but it leads to 
some trouble when we come to consider it 
more carcfulh. for if w i ..--- me that "mot 
-"--rs-trrc earliest name, and meant thp "mahagi 
then vve are driven to the somewhat difficult 
hypothesis that the primitive peoples had - 
gularly organized homes before they had 
mothers ! And, if "daughter" be the -primitive 
name, and means the "milk-maid." then the 
aboriginals must have had cows before they 
had daughters, which is also a little difficult. 

to believe, 

In point of fact, the names given to woman 
in her different relations can hardly be ex- 
plained by the notion that she was always 
honored and esteemed as she is now. "Mother" 
may; to be sure, mean the "measurer-out," but- 
more probably the "maker" or "producer"^ "p 
children. "Daughter" from duh.or xihugh (the 
i'nglish, "drug" i dd&, not mean "the milker,'' 
but in .all probability the name gets its form, 
from the fact that the primitive father regard- 
ed his daughter as simply the nurse for future 
children. •'-*•"•. 

The other names of which we have 'to 
speak all bear out this lower view. The word 
"woman" itself is a case in point. It is a com- 
pound word, the Anglo-Saxon form of it being 
wif-mann. The second part of this compound, 
in an n, did not originally mean a male hu man 1 
being, but simply a human being as compared 
with a beast. It contains the same root as the 
word "mind," and at first m eant "^thinkin g 
animal." This use of "man" is still retained in 
the ' J«rnw m Mann, when used like the French 
r_iOJV which- is itself a mutila__d_iorm of fiomme 
i man). • , 

1. fence, "woman'' means simply "wi feman," , 
and the popular' pronunciation of the. plural/ 
as though it were written wimmen, shows the 
original vowel to. have been an i. In fact, the 
early orthography exhibits the gradual devel- 
opment of form— first wifman, then wifmon, 
then wimman, wimnioti, wumman and woman. 

It next is well to consider the meaning of 
"wife" in order to see what a "wife-man" really, 
was in primitive times. 

"Wife" is from the same root as the word 

"vibrai ind in similar forms in Sanskrit, 

Latin, and Old High German, and it thus ori- 

lally means "the trembler." Therefore, we 

Mold much as it pro! 

was, with the wife and mother not the "mana- 

•-," but the wife-man, the 'cowering, tremb-, 

ling, "thinking animal,", whom the .other'' 

"thinking animal," arrogating to himself at last 

the. proud title of "man." kept in subjection by 

kicks and blows. This is not so pretty a pict 

as the other, but it is undoubtedly truer to the 

!• may seem a .little odd that "man" was/. 
mihihe il as masculine, but it is 

nol an isolated case. The word "girl" once 
meant a child of either sex. Thus, in I ' .. ■

•Probably -only a few readers have taken no- 
tice of the habits of snails' and slugs, humble 
crawlers or delvers. which are common ever-y- 
where, and often regarded with a sort of dislike. 
Of course, many of them are troublesome tr 
the gardenexJbnt others have the character of 
being harmless, and all have much that is curi- 
ous connected with their appearance or-.-historv.- 
For example, it may.seem.odd to speak of snails 
as spinners, yet most ■ b f -ttiww a r MH>div il ie 
and water species. Spinners, we say,' becau 
they draw or produce a thread ; this" however, 
is not "of a silken nature, like that belonging 
to a spider or to a caterpillar. The thread of 
the snail is a sort of slime which comes out of 
the body and leaves a track on the ground. To, 
make. this slime, moisture is needed, and that is 
why snails delight so muchy'n rainy or damp > 
weather, while a long drought is very trying' 
to them. Some snails, indeed, spend' all, or 
'nearly all, their life under water, making their 
home in ponds, and ditches. , 

The aquatic species form threads as well as 
■hat live upon the land: Mr. Warring- 
ton found, mi trying a specimen taken from a 
pond, that its thread was strong enough for him. 
to lift up the snail by it. Somc-of the' water 
snails have, a tiny bag or sac, which they fill 
With air. This enables them to breathe under 
water. Should this bag be quite full, they can 
remain On the top, but, when it is emptied* they 
sink to the bot tom. 

A naturalist, who had a party of snails .in 
an aquarium, found that rhey spun threads 
more than a foot long, which lasted for three 
weeks, and he_believcs that in ponds they oft, 
have threads twice or thrice' that length,. Some- 
kinds can . >nl\ .he 'cs'cending thread ; they 

_1q.W£X themselves from a leaf or stem under 
tlie water, but they arc nol able to climb up. 
The common slugs of the garden sornetinv 
shorten a journey by letting out a thread, and ' 
then dropping part of the., flist a sli 

. may sometimes be seen swinging at the-e-nd. if 
the wind blows, waiting for. a chancTTto descend 
safely. .„ 

There is a litt' iter snail, called the 

1'hysa. While they are young, these creatun 
make quite a network of— threads — fairy la d* — 


- ders one might call them upon which they 
.'travel to ami i'r<. fp-r weeks, twisting and twirl'-, 
ing about in a curious fashion,

father of sportsmanlike shooting: h e picked his

to pick a number up." 1 pass over (iile.s Jaboc,

pages with those ..of Sprint clearly indicates 
large, indebtedness to "T1V Rxperienc'd Fowl-

oh the subject : "I m ed not inform the sports 1 
man that his gnu for shooting flying might to 
be of a wide bore, a small matter under a mu-- 
quet." ,c — r-- . 

Many works olh sport published during the 
eighteenth century contain advice on shooting 
flying. Thonia- Fairfax, whose "Cdhrpl 
Sportsman" was first published in 17'x). con- 
deiised the practical advice contained in "l'leiy

Satchel in-hand. I was oil mv way to the 
depot in Denver. Colorado, intending to take 
the afternoon- train for the States, as they used 
to say in the West. I had been up near Port 
Collins shotting duck- with an old friend, and 
one of my college, classmates, who resided in 
Denver, accompanied me on my \yayt.p the rail 
way station. As we walked we talkctl about 
the good old times at Yale, and of old friends. 
I had heard that amother -classmate had g^me to 

Imailo lo.liye. .ami asked my companion if he 
knew anything about liiln. lie stopped"/ and 
pointing at the building before us, said, he lives 
iierc. We were in fact before his door, f had— 
a half hour ni wdifch t" make* the train, amid 
decided to spend a few minutes with my friend 
if he was -at home. Tire 'servant who opened 
the door said he Was out, but his wife 1 ame to 
• who was at. the door and greeted me cordi- 
ally, and said her husband soon would, return, 
and that she knew he would lie glad to sec me. 
and much disappointed if I did not wait. 

There was a cheerful open fire in a big fire 
place,, and before it there were a number of 
handsome greyhounds and a pair of rough- 
coaled hounds which <*nmewh&V resembled the 
Scotch deerhnunds. They were a fine loi of. 
dogs and were kepi for huh ting antelope. In a

my walch. 1 toiil him I had ju-t time enough to 
sav "I b. 'w " and good by. -He took .my satche.1 
from my hand and said : "Von can' say good -bv 
tiiree days from now. but no1 a minute sooner. 

mm-i-iiw -,\ <; are going to .hunt antelope, and 

u certainly must hoi miss this hunt." (In

If you say anything long enough and loud 
enough, some one is sure to arise and shout 
the opposite. 

Suppose you were moved to intone continu- 
ously that two and tWO are four, after a while 
you would certainly hear an angry voice pro 
testing that they were six. You may. ifTyoli 
like," take this as a melancholy example erf the 
scant interest that human nature rakes In truth. 
Certainly there is good reason to believe that 
the majority will always have a taste fo| a new 
and entertaining lie. 

? But while the appetite for honest platitude 
remains at its present strength, we n.-ed not. ' 
seriously concern ourse lves aboul a mild jeal- 
ousy for condiments in. the -A,;., "t novel pa- 

And all this is preliminary. We approach 
the subject. The cry that the present age is 
too fond of pleasure has resounded for long 
years in the moving accents of many of our 
pastors and masters. We have been persuaded 
or deafened into believing it. and not without 
an occasional thri delight, at "being so 

wicked, we have come to consider ourselves as 
a generation of high distinction for luxury 
and laziness. \'ow. at last, someone or Other 
has been found to proclaim thatVhat is wrong 
with us is that we love pleasure not too much, 
but far too little. Instead of being lazy lotus- 
caters, as wc hao frtnHly supposed, we arc de 

the shop windows; we see temptin g prices, and 
we arc filled with cestacy at the idea 'of don- 
ning pretty muslins and delicate ribbon-, and 
[lowers. Few of us are sufficiently level-head- 
ed .calculate the relations of the place yw-Q 

choose in which to spend our holiday and the 
clothes we select to take away with-us.' • ■ 
I'or short holidays of a tew,,da\s it is wise 
to resist temptation the light muslins and 
linens that crush easily. We Englishwomen!\ gel beyond the coal and "skirt, with a 
vafiet) of blouses, but this season there are lit 
tie frocks made of woollen voiles or of a mix- 
tuir- oi silk and wool. The jumper is always 
useful, and permits o'f mau\ ch ang es, rung Oil 
blouses of silk, soft ninou, or one of the thin 
hew crepOns, as well as the ever-dainty bio 
deric anglaise of which SO much is worn . For 

"a holiday spent in the. South , by the river, or at 

the seaside cotton frocks are to be commended! 

\ white one ought always to-be slipped in the 

traveling ca sunny days and for special 

occasions, but such .nice and ..serviceable colors 
as indigo-blue and brown ought not to be o mit- 
ted. Kven a coat and skirt should 

never omit ajjggOOd, warm - coat. . These arc 
made in blanket cloth, in thin serge, or in silk; 
but every material ought to be waterproof ' 
A coat with large pockets and a wide eollar 
that can be turned Up when required is invalu- 
able otl days when warmth and comfort make 
all the difference to the enjoyment of a holiday. 

and pretty. New. too, is a simple straw hat, 
depending on a mire ribbon or baud of velvet, 
''lever women carry a few bunches of flowers 
and one or two large ribbon bows in varied col- 
ors to add to this trimming, and so; smarten up 
their appearance on special occasions. \'o in- 
dulgence in the matter 0.1 dainty shoe. ,- 1 1 , . 1 1 1 - 1 

be considered, for nothing is .so valuable as 

well-fitted thin leather shoes that have beer in 
wearfor some time. ■ . . 


With no willingness to further revile the 
already discredited gallantry, of the modern 
man is the question of llescorts" and "escort- 
ing." At the present day these very words 
have about them a suggestion of formality and 
punctiliousness grown foreign to British man- 
ners, and "escort duty" survives, changed 
though it may be. to an extent w hich' must 
horrify the shades eft gallants dead and forgot- 
ten. ■ ' • 

That inen have now more opportunities to 
act as escorts than at -any tune is ,,ne of the 
outcomes of the greater liberty women allow 
themselves in many directions in which they 
were not to be seen in other ages, either alone 
or. under escort. The etiquette Of theatre go- 
has in itself altered in a way that would 
put heavy demands on the male" escort. Wo- 

dinners and dances, at cricket matches 
meetings, regattas, and other "functions' 1 of 
.the season And how does the, modern <- 
fulfil his privileges in these respects? In judg- 

clared to be a mere multitude of soulless ma- 
c hines, which hav e , no o ther e x istence than 
struggling through the work of the day. 

If'vou are m the happy position uf believ- 
ing n e i th^r-m-4b - e-- w » w ■ 1 1 u- o r > . or the old, you 
may well rejoice that they should both get 
themselves Jtated at the worst. When- you 
see a caricature of yourself, you may be 
moved to ask, for the good of your soul, wh 
er you really are like that. And to engage 
upon an inquiry as to what yon a re like is s ure- 
lv educative, though you arrive, as you cer- 
tainly will, at. a fallacious conclusion. The 
chief importance of this declaration that wc do 
not love pleasure enough, and do not seek and 
endure it with sufficient earnestness, is not that 
it describes with any particular accuracy the 
manners and customs of England in the year 
of grace l<;io, and that it may suggest whole- 
some doubts whether there is anymore accur- 
acy in the prevalent theory that' We are making 
pleasure fhe sole end of man, and woman. If 
we were to consider this grave matter in sol- 
emn earnestness we should have to plunge into 
a phil osophic discission as to what pleasure 
really. "is. \VTicVi the weather is bad, i.1 produces 
a state of mind in which we might evert allow 
Ourselves scepticism whether there is any 
pleasure at all. But the "sun of occa sion can 
shine," and the temptation to— pessimism 
least, we must resist. Not to make ourselves 
duller than the sky. we may also resist the 
temptation to philosophize. So we will not 
dally with subtleties concerning, 'the evident 
truth that there is pleasure to be had in doing 
anything if we do it, successfully. We take the 
search for pleasure to mean pleasure in som e-. 
thing outside the tasks of daily labor. 

It needs some ignorance of the history of 
human nature to maintain that this age is sin- 
gled out from all others by its love o\ pleasure. 

If you find that in amusements of one kind 
and another, let us say in open-air games, jjiis 
generation indulges itself much_niore than its 
forefathers of. the early nineteenth century, 


vim must also- remark~ifaex 

it has abandoned: Tf you go back a century or 

two earlier, you wi ll find holiday? in profusion, 
and an indulgence in pageantry and sports, 
worst of all in sports like bull 'and bear baiti; 
which were mere specta eles-fot the crowd. 
which our hu rrying : ITT e affords ho rivalry; ff 
we love pleasure too' much, 'he Elizabethans 
were its slaves. And no one has ever said 
that they lacked vigor. . If we like to play with- 
the belief that everything ,is for the best in the 
best of all possible worlds, you can find much 
matter for satisfaction in all this talk about 
-pleas.urc. Since the experience of the. ages 
proves that without a modicum of pleasure, no 

one will ever do the best work of which he or 

le is capable, it, is well that some 
the champion of plca-ure-scrking. Since the' 
temptations to cxr-^s are sufficiently potent in 

all H is equally well that the established • 

creed on the subject should prono 

d habitually seek' pleasure t nestR. 

If vnn are careful to belie ve neither of the rival 
declarations, you may go the way of truth and

It is a .mistake to give fancy free play in the 

taking care of herself. But this is not alto- 
gether an attitude of modern date. 

Referring to the standard work on Victori- 
an etiquette, one learns fhat "the practise of 
walking arm-in-arm appears to be entirely 
abandoned except on such occasions as going 
into dinner, supper, etc." Rut since those 
days, we have further fined down etiquette to 
a point at which the right arm of a man is not 
Iways called into use, even on the occasions 

Few young escorts have any faith in the 
possibilities of the arm-in-arm formality. They 
prefer not to embarrass the lady by making 
an offering of their coat sleeve, or, when they 
do so. it is in a frame of gallantry expressed 
(it has been related) in the words "hook on." 
• Turning to 'the guidance and philosophy 
of the work on etiquette again, we a r e told 
that in comparatively recent years it was the 
custom for "a gentleman to follow a lady up- 
stairs." Also, that "if by any mischan-ce a,lad\ 
is in a crowd, the gentleman should precede 
her in order to clear 'a path for her. and try Jo . 
shield 'her as much as possible from rude en- 
counters. We hardly recognize the modern 
escort in these capacities. A large majority of 
men climb stairs ahead of -their charge, and 
look around to see how she is getting on be- 
low. Again, the woman of today is nearly al- 
ways in all crowds, but we rarely see her es- 
cort- oh duty as a gallant fdaugJay-auaking a 
clear path for the lady to tread. 

These are matters which need considera- 
tion. It is quite certain that if we are not on 
the side of those who regard "manners" as a 
thing of the past. we. must not allow duty to 
become little more than a name. 

Already is. questionab le whether the 
younger generation of males have the charac- 
teristics necessary to render them both useful 
and' ornamental* - escorts. They have grown to 
prefer the go-as-you-please order of partnering 
a feminine companion in any circumstances. 
And geforc even contemplating a revival of 
the true and gallant style of escorting, we 
must face the problem of woman's attitude 
in the matter. 

Would, the majority, thp Jeadin.g strength 
of the sex care to patronize a .revival /of the 
escort ? ■ ■> > 

Xo mere man can .hope-to-answer this ques- 
tion with any assurance. Mis suspicions are, 
in fact, such as to discourage 1 him fromputv 
suing the problem at all. He. cannot easily 
picture himself in any position, save that of 
escort on sufferance, lie has not to his know- 
ledge met many eminently cscortable girls or 
women.' At time-s^e has even felt himself 
escorted rather than the contrary. He is cer- 
tainly acquainted with those of the opposite 
sex who escrt themselves to admiration, and 
are never for one moment conscious that , the 
man at their side, in front, or behind, "as mod- 
ern ideas will have it. is responsible for their 
safety and, protection. /

The ancient . kings, hrehons, and fileas of 
the Milesian Irish were men of great intelli-

Standard; but It may be information to the ma-

General Sir John French, Inspector-General 

of the Forces, returned to this country on Sat- 
urday morning, having completed the military 
tour of inspection he was invited to make 
throughout the Dominion by the Canadian 
Government. Sir John French arrived in (Que- 
bec on May 20 last, and for two months spent 
his time in both Western and Eastern Canada 
in as thorough an examination of the present 
military efficiency of the Dominion Forces as 
was possible .in the time." He now returns-a-t 

Militia obligations. The administrative ser- 
vices, though conceived on the right lines and 
possessing ample material, fail through the ab-

collective organization and distribution of the 
units is unsatisfactory, and m\ district., 
quite unworkable for purposes oi mobiiizatiori

Two women, and several children occupied 
the kitchen as I entered, and beyond the steam 
rising from a washtub I saw a ' good-looking 
girl of about sixteen. The. women, greeted me 
frankly, and when" I told them the nature of 
my errand, they responded quickly, with 'the 
readiness of city-bred people. Their accents 
differed noticeably. One referred to her hus- 
band, who was absent, as "The Master;" The 
other complained of the loneliness, but admit

It was said q{ an English judge who was 
engaged in a foreign case of arbitration, when 
one sjde were dissatisfied with the award, that 
he remarked, "If you do not want a just award 
do. not invite Dullish judges." The same sen- 
tence might well be adapted in the case of Sir 
h-lm French. If the Dominion Crwc.rimjen-t- 
wcre not anxious to have a just report upon 
their military efficiency, they were foolish to 
invite Sir John French to report upon their 
Militia, lint 1 do not believe that the Domin- 
ion Government or Canadians in generaf wish- 
ed for anything but the truth. They are too 
much alive to the military obligations that 
their geographical and economic circumstances 
place upon them to wish for less than the bald 

-truth. 1 understand that if Sir John French's 
published it will disclose a state of 
milita ry inefficiency in the Dominion that wi'» 
probably be a revelation to most Canadians. 
■<t Sir John French is ever a constructive 
critic, and although he may ruthlessly con- 
demn much that the Canadians themselves may 
have thou-ht good, yet he will have furnish 
them with a model upon which to build in fu- 
ture, and a model upon which, with the intel- 

.ligence, earnestness, and material of Canada, it 
will be possible to build quickly and surelv. I 
believe that it will be found that Sir John 
French, in the first place, condemns the whole 
existing conceptiqn of the strategical require- 
ments of the Canadian .Militia. This, coupled. 
with the non-existence of a sound peace or- 
ganization and an effective staff, suggests that 
from the very outset the Dominion defence 
forces are in a bad way. If such staff as exists 
dose not understand the fjrst principles, in the 
•rategic distribution of its forces, then— it is 
impossible for it to have a sound peace organ- 

I do not believe that Sir John French ob- 
jects to the present Militia system in force in 
Canada : he certainly Would ll(M consider him- 
self called upon to advise the Dominion on 4he- 

the military obligations of citizenship. And 
with the sense of this obligation so strong and 
material so fitted for military training, there 
is no reason for Canadians to resent criticism 
that IS sincere, well meant, and altogether in 
f< rming and constructive. Sir John French has 
had the opportunity of seeing much of Ihe^ca— 
det movement in Canada. It is.- a real move- 
ment, and has been fostered and encouraged 
by both the clergy and the schoolmaster-- with 
a patr iotic zeal th ajLcan .read the Mother Coun-^ 
try a rude and trenchant lesson. 

If the Dominiorf Government and the peo- 
ple of Canada will profit by the great experi- 
ence of the general officer whose untiring ef- 
forts have entirely remodelled the training and 
efficiency of the British Army, the result ^of 
which tin King has just seen at A'ldcrshot, Sir 
John French will have rendered another service 
t< the Empire as great as any that have pre- 
ceded it. — London Times.

- One of the mos)t useful plants in existence is 
the sugar cane, arid the youngest of its species 
which is now alive is said to be at least 2,000 
years old. 

"A plant as old as "that?" you cry. "Why, 
it would be quite worn out, and good for noth- 

But this is not so with sugar cane, or you 
would have to look to some other source for 
the sparkling lumps you see. on the table at 
breakfast and tea time. 

The reason that sugar canes are so very old 
is this : Most plants, as you know, reproduce 
or "propagate" themselves in various ways, 
and if left to itself the sugar cane' would do this 
by Seeding. Sugar planters, however, did not 
care to wait until the seed grew up into strong 
plants, so for all the 2,000 years that it has 
been under cultivation theyTiave grown it by 
means of "suckers" that spring from the origin- 
al stem. Thus every "new" plant is in reality 
an old one. The poor su^ar cane has become 
so. weakened by this time through not having 
been allowed to grow^ as nature intended, that 
it is very difficult now to get it to seed at all. 
If this could not be done it would in time die 
out altogether, and most likely. the beet-root-^
